One of the many highlights of this year’s Festival programme was She Writes: a celebratory performed reading of one of Grace Banks and Kate Bingham’s screenplay Saint Joan, co-presented with The Script Factory and BAFTA, and written and developed during last year’s She Writes lab. The performance was introduced by a keynote speech from Birds Eye View Chair and celebrated producer (including, most recently, of Made in Dagenham) Elizabeth Karlsen, examining the current prognosis of British female screenwriters, and asking whether the challenges they face today might not be even greater than those in the earliest days of the industry.
